THIS IS MY 1ST REVIEW FROM A CLIENT
THIS TOWN HOUSE IN THE OLD CITY IS YOUR REWARD
Wow! This was my first impression when entering this property. The level of attention to detail is astonishing. The pictures are impressive but once in the house, every taste bud is teased. This is above luxury. I stayed there for a week however there was something new and unique I noticed each day either on the walls or around the various rooms. Great location for exploring by foot with a super Thai restaurant just 2 minutes away. Highly recommended.

Standing in front of the Cultural Centre is the Three King's Monument. The monument pays homage to King Mengrai, the founder of Chiang Mai; King Ramkamhaeng of Sukothai; and King Ngam Muang of Payao who according to legend worked together to design and establish the city.

Do you remember what shopping was like before Walmarts and Cosco's and Markro's. When you could run out to a green grocer and pick up corn or morning glory . That's what this neighborhood is like

The Old City really comes alive every Sunday when Ratchadomoen Road, running west from Thapae Gate, becomes a walking street complete with a craft market, local dancers and musicians. Not just tourists attend; it seems as if the whole city is present and the Old City of Chiang Mai throbs with bustle and excitement.
TWO BLOCKS FROM WAT PHRA SINGH AND SUNDAY WALKING STREET
Chiang Mai's most revered temple, Wat Phra Singh draws pilgrims and sightseers for its resident Buddha and its classic Lanna art and architecture. Visitors should dress modestly (clothing covering shoulders and knees).
Phra Singh (Lion Buddha), the temple's famous image, is housed in Wihan Lai Kham, a small chapel to the rear of the temple grounds next to the chedi (stupa). The building boasts a Lanna-style three-tiered roof and carved gables. Inside are sumptuous lai·krahm (gold-pattern stencilling) and murals.
Despite Phra Singh's exalted status, very little is actually known about the image. It is considered one of the most beautiful examples of Lanna religious art thanks to its thick human-like features and lotus-shaped topknot. Because there are two nearly identical images in Nakhon Si Thammarat and Bangkok, no one knows if this is the real one, nor can anyone document its place of origin. Regardless, this Phra Singh image came to reside here around the 1360s, and is now a fixture in the religious ceremonies of the Songkran festival.
Other features include the temple's main chedi, which is a classic Lanna-style octagonal base. It was built by King Pa Yo in 1345 in honour of his father. The main wí·hăhn, which sits right at the entrance, houses a bigger but less important Buddha known as Thong Thip.
